This remarkable harvest does something unexplainable when you drink it. First flush is always something to look forward to.

Only had a small amount of this so I savored it as much as I could. The age of the tea changed the flavor immensely compared to its modern equivalent. The aged version has a earthy-smokey-dusty-almost tree-like flavor and aroma that may or may not be able to stop time. Definitely an experience. Only wish I had enough for the ’58…

Did you get this from dobra?

I’ve had both the ’58 and the ’68…And they both stop time…The most delicious way to time-travel, in fact! Andrew and I decided that I would be “Tung Ting 1981” at the tearoom (instead of my usual monniker “Tung Ting”), so that I could be an “aged” oolong, too!

Excellent wild Pu-erh. sort of tastes like bamboo or if you’ve ever chewed on a chopstick. light but still earthy, i’ve gotten as many as 13 good infusions out of it before it lost it’s flavor.


Wild? I’ve never heard tea described as wild before.

Yeah I guess it isn’t from a tea garden, people just pick it from wherever. it’s really good though. almost impossible to over steep it too.
